voted for rug declaring war on japan and germany. back to present-day politics, we now know that the u.s. supreme court plans to dive into one of the most talked about and emotional issues of our age. whether same-sex couples have the right to marry. the high court is taking on two cases, one involving the federal defense of marriage act, or d doma, and another involving california's proposition 8, banning same-sex marriages in that state. for analysis into these historic cases, what's going to be a historic hearing, i want to bring in kinji yoshityoshito, professor of constitutional law at new york city. great to see you. >> good to see you. >> put prop 8 aside for a second. do you believe that the supreme court will strike down doma. this is what what you've said. walk me through your thinking on that one. >> y bet. so doma is a really narrow challenge insofar as what the statute does is it says for federal purposes marriages are defined between one man and one woman. so i think it might be best to clarify this by example. so you take edie windsor, a plaintiff coming out of new york
. the majority of whom hailed from ireland and germany. almost half were from ireland alone. in 1855, more than 50% of the population of new york, the first port of call for the majority of immigrants, was foreign-born. but attitudes were changing. toward the end of the 19th sentry, just 1.6% of immigrants were asian. but apparently that was enough to push congress to pass the chinese exclusion act in 1882 restricting immigration from china for ten years. as public opinion turned against certain kinds of immigrants in the early 20th century, more legislative restrictions began to take hold. in 1924, the johnson-reid immigration act created a quota system. it puts caps on the number of immigrants that could come to the u.s. from a particular country. the act also included a provision that made certain immigrants ineligible for citizenship based on race or nationality. by the middle of the 20th septemberry, the face of immigration to the united states had begun to change. by the end of the 1970s, a third of the foreign-born population of the country hailed from latin america. today that trend has
, but this contribution of three total member nations, germany expected to begin ratifying its deployment of two patriot batteries, the netherlands as well. let me give you the back story. the past two months we have seen exchanges, syrian army accused of firing into turkey. turkey returning fire. that sense of host tillity and volatility on the border leading them to ask nato for help and patriots coming here at this point. expected to be used mostly in the event of missiles being fired and have the ability to take down aircraft as well. we heard from u.s. secretary of defense leon panetta, that the u.s. does have a plan in the event that they see the assad regime use or prepare to use chemical weapons. not clear if patriots will be involved in that. but right now, in the very volatile part of the world, we have u.s. troops potentially on the ground. >> nick paton walsh, thank you for the update. >>> frank discussions, open lines of communication, but no deal. 18 days until the fiscal cliff. president obama and john boehner met just under an hour. after coordinated press releases, both sides assured th
away the guns from the people in germany. you saw the results. host: what about other kinds of gun laws? you talked about farming and officer -- arming an officer, some type of official presence in schools, but what about a bill to ban assault weapons? caller: it used to be and i'm getting mixed -- are they going to bring up banning semi- automatic rifles? there were not been used in the crime, from what i understand. host: good morning to lois, a republican. caller: it is the people we have to worry about. it is mental illness. families recognize their children as they are growing up. if that could be curtailed, i know they would hate to put them in a mental institution. i would, too, because they love their child just the same. but those children that grow up with mental illness, it does not matter how they get it, they are going to get weapons of some sort. it is not the guns that the problem, it's the people. they have to collect those mentally ill people. host: would you lock them all up? caller: no. you hear about doctors. i don't know quite, but that is what the problem is, menta
, and so only pan am 103 that was flying out of germany into heathrow and then from heathrow back to new york got away with it, and that's what had taken place. as far as abdel basaet al-megrahi being released, that -- let me just put it this way. it was money and oil that brought all of this about. british petroleum gave money to the brits, the brits blamed the scotts. the scottish government released abdel basaet al-megrahi, and that is true, and it was the scottish people that were up in arms, they were opposed to this. and we areee certainl we are externally grateful to the scottish people and the information po about the degre of his cancer that he had was not true. jaime: at least you give them thanks and let them know, the scottish people made a difference for you. you're spending the holiday season without your daughter diane. we want to wish you and your family a good, healthy holiday season. thanks for joining us, stan. take care. >> thank you and a merry christmas, thank you. jaime: take care. kelly. kelly: the head of the nra partly blames the media for the school shooting in
